How to find missing Skill Magazines?: In-game the Skill Magazines will appear simply everywhere in the galaxy, especially on flat surfaces like tables and desks, you can pick them up to collect when you stand next to it. It can be confirmed as being Skill Magazines simply by walking up to it, as the on-screen text will then tell you can press the action button/key to “Pick Up Skill Magazine”.

There can be multiple copies of the same Skill Magazine in the game.

Does the game save each Skill Magazines you collect?: Yes, the game will automatically save the Skill Magazines you just collected if you picked up the Skill Magazine, so you don’t have to play to the end of the mission.
